Blades of Paralysis
These weapons were originally created by various assasins guilds to help in their line of work, and were only created in the smaller blades; daggers and shortswords. The usefullness of these blades soon caught on with other people, and now that are created in any variety of sword.
These +1 weapons have the unique ability to paralize any creature wounded by a Blade of Paralysis. When stuck, the creature must make a Fortitude save against a DC of 18, or be paralized for 1d4+1 rounds. In addition, all blood flow ceases, so fast healing and regeneration are not used. Also, potions cannot be used, as the body is unable to swallow them.
A creature can only be affected by a Blade of Paralysis once per day.
Price: 10,000 + masterwork price of the weapon (dagger, shortsword, longsword, bastard sword, greatsword)
